Dominant Bowe wins again at speedskating World Cup finals

BY foxsports • March 13, 2016

HEERENVEEN, Netherlands (AP) Brittany Bowe won her fourth race of the speedskating World Cup finals on Sunday, taking the 1,000 meters to underscore her dominance of the event this season.

Bowe won in 1 minute 14.22, beating world champion Jorien ter Mors of the Netherlands into second place. Bowe's American teammate Heather Richardson-Bergsma was third. Bowe was already assured of winning the season-long World Cup standings before she raced at Thialf oval.

In the season's final World Cup tournament, Bowe won both 500 meter races and the 1,500 before Sunday's victory in the 1,000.

Ter Mors usually makes up time on Bowe in the later stages of the sprint, but not in this race. She tells Dutch broadcaster NOS, ''Brittany skated a great race with a really strong final lap.''
